Just back at my hotel after seeing the show on Broadway! Willemijn was incredible!!! I would love to see her come over and play the role in London as, and this is something I never thought I would say; she is a better Elphie than Rachel Tucker in my opinion! Her voice is to die for and generally she was perfect with the acting! I want to see her again!!!

So glad you enjoyed her performance! While I adore Rachel, Willemijn is one of the few who completely disappears into the role and becomes Elphaba when she's onstage rather than just being an actor in green makeup, in my opinion. If I could fly to NYC just to see her again I would! It'd be such a waste if she never brought her flawless Elphaba to London at some point. (Also really hoping she performs at Scott Alan's concert at the O2 in August, but that's just me :P )
Seen (theatre): Once (London x 2), Wicked (Scheveningen, The Netherlands x6), Wicked (London x 22), We Will Rock You (London x3), Les Miserables (London x 1), The Phantom of the Opera (London x1), Rock of Ages (London x 1), Romeo et Juliette (Takarazuka Revue, Japan x 5), Studio54 (Takarazuka Revue, Japan, x1), For Whom The Bell Tolls (Takarazuka Revue, Japan, x1), Nova Bossa Nova/Meguriai wa Futatabi (Takarazuka Revue, Japan, x2), Nijinsky (Takarazuka Revue, Japan, x3), 9 to 5: The Musical (UK Tour, Sunderland x1), RENT in Concert (Newcastle x1), Singin' In The Rain (UK Tour, Sunderland x 1)

Seen (concerts, etc): Willemijn Verkaik "As I Am" solo concert at the AFAS Circustheater (2012), West End Eurovision 2013, Rachel Tucker at the St James Theatre studio, Scott Alan at the O2, Andrew Lippa at the St James Theatre
